I thought that only happened backstage at Motown reunion tours.

Ok, I'm Canadian and all happy for it... but really, it's just a quarter-final. Are we going to make a post everytime they win? What about everytime the Americans win? It's kind of unneccessary.

Take it to the locker-room (oh wait, never mind).

I will only be happy if Russia does not get a medal.

In case some didn't catch the reference, there's also SportsFilter now.

I'm not entirely convinced facing Belarus is the best thing for Canada. If we were to face Sweden, we’d have revenge on our minds and would probably play a full game of good hockey. Now that we’re playing Belarus we are more likely to take the game for granted and let them have some early goals.

Being half-Swede, I'm very looking forward to a US-Sweden matchup for the gold.

And I'm happy Canada won, too. Maybe The Great One will stop whining now about the International Conspiracy Against Canada.

I doubt that anyone is taking Belarus for granted these days. If there's one thing hockey players fear, it's a hot goalie. And Mezin (goalie for Belarus) is hot.

Now that Sweden is out, I really think it will be between the US and Russia, unless Canada actually reponds to Gretzky's paranoid whining.

Umm, the gold medal game can't be US-Russia. They're playing in the semis. It's US-Russia and Canada-Belarus, with the winners going for gold.

Woohoo, damn i'm happy for Belarus, as I am a Belarussian. Although I must say, I didn't even know they had an Olympic hockey team before this article. :-P

Anyways, I don't think they will win, if they do: yay! If not, oh well. There's always Russia. hehe

And the yankees in here can stop crying. Win or lose, it's only a game. I believe that most of you are still pissed that you've only defeated the Russians only once?

*sigh*

Humans and their pitiful means of entertainment.. sports.

Whoa -- I didn't realize, and the articles didn't make clear, that the loss to Belarus actually eliminated Sweden. I guess I thought they were still in qualifying rounds.

The odds are US-Canada for the gold, by far. But we have to get past Russia.

Warning! There is a conspiration going on against Sweden!
If the Swedish team/competitor has not won the game/sport you are looking at the enemy/terrorists has won! Don´t support the enemy!
USA, Salt Lake City the safest place on the earth during the Olympics?! Bah!! Don´t they see that the enemy has outsmartened them! The plan is to crush the Swedish people down the suicide lane, making them think they are all loosers, and after that take over the western world with god old Sweden as base.
Help us survive, save yourselfs and us!! Send your gold, silver,bronzes medals to us!!! Breake a leg on a god non swedish player, demand a new hockey tounament

God save Sweden!! Thank you for your support!
